The Bermuda Electrical Light Company engaged New England Institute of Technology (NEIT) to provide a customized 300-hour machinist program to support its efforts to hire qualified workers. New workers educated in the Machine Tool Technology program at NEIT now are likely to be placed in entry level machinist positions (starting wage $14.00 per hour)
Diane McCallum, NEIT’s Training Administrator for Ascendant Group Limited Pembroke, Bermuda contacted the school regarding a need for Machine Tool Technology training. The 300-hour machinist program covered many of the technical skills and procedures needed. Most students completing this machinist program are placed directly into entry level machinist positions.
